Hello to you all -I am a Ngunnawal man & our totem is the Wedge Tail Eagle. I acknowledge the traditional land owners of this land where I work and live- the Dharawal People. The totem for the Dharawal tribe is the lyrebird & I pay my respects to all Elders past and present. The name Yulang Manuwi Muru is from the Dharawal language and translates to "community spiritual path".
Now we have secured the old Ambarvale youth centre as a place to operate from the vision and dream is to create a Aboriginal atmosphere that the whole community will feel that they own and can be proud of. We will be hosting cultural activities, events and awareness of all things Aboriginal.
One of our main priorities is to create a space that the Elders can come to relax, yarn up and to also advise us of the issues they would like to see changed.
Not only will we be consulting these Elders for advice & guidance but we will be travelling to sacred or significant Aboriginal sites on a regular basis to reconnect with the values and land that has made our proud,strong Aboriginal culture not only survive but thrive for over 40,000+ years.
This is the start of a new era in the Campbelltown Aboriginal Community and the spiritual path that we as a community will build, then it will empower and inspire future generations of young Aboriginal kids who are our future leaders and Elders.
